quality rubber boots for riding

I am interested in buying some rubber tall boots that can also be used for riding so I don't have to change into paddock boots and half chaps on rainy mucky days. Does anyone have any insight on this? I need a boot that will adjust to a 16 1/2 inch calf- size 8 or 8 1/2. I saw some boots in the store and some online I.e Hunter,Bogs,Muck boots etc. Thank you in advance.

I would vote for the Brit Colts, Muck Boots riding boot. I love my Muck boots, they keep me both warm and dry during our wonderful Canadian winters, I have ridden in mine, which are chore boots, I would love the colts.

Thanks Golden Horse. I saw the Brit Colts online but not in any store here. I live in the Ottawa-Gatineau area and there are limited tack stores here. They look nice though especially for these cold fall and spring days.

I agree on brit colts as they ae a lot more breathable than plain rubber boots and they are water-proof. Trust me, mine stayed water-proof in water almost to the top of them. Made getting my horse out of a flooded field a lot easier.

I gave up on stores long ago, Just find some good online stores. Always check out the return policy. Just order the size you think and if they don't fit send em back, even with the return shipping its still probably cheaper than what you would burn in gas driving all over just to find they don't have the style you want, or to hear, "We can order it for you", yeh no kidding? I can order it for me.

I tried riding in rubber boots and I gave up, because neither gave me enough ankle support. May be those expensive ones give it, but I never tried the pricey.

Thanks for your insight everyone. I think I'll try the Brit Colts and hope the calf size is adequate enough. They seem like the best choice out there. I haven't posted before and I think it's great to have opinions from so many people.
